I am the newest member of the Education Department and teach courses such as Educational Psychology, Creativity: Teaching, Learning, and Cross Disciplinary Applications, and Teaching Students with Diverse Learning Needs. My research interests include the development and maintenance of domain identification and student interest and teaching strategies that support domain identification and student interest. Before falling in love with educational psychology and educational research, I taught middle school special education for four years and worked as an environmental educator at a small farm near the Blue Ridge Parkway.
